Correlation of sodium ascorbate to blood pressure increases

Post Number:#1  Post by Shep » Wed Mar 14, 2012 2:47 am

Although only approximately 25-30% of the population are sodium sensitive, is there any information regarding sodium ascorbate increasing blood pressure in the amounts necessary for PT protocols? In particular lyposomal?

All IV/C is sodium ascorbate (or should be!). Buffered ascorbic acid at least, and some people have 100 to 200 g infusions. To my knowledge, these infusions have no/little effect on blood pressure.

As we have mentioned previously, it is not sodium per se, but highly refined sodium chloride (table salt) that seems to cause problems.
